The Role

As a Senior Analyst in the Reward practice you will have immediate exposure to a range of clients and subject areas. We consult broadly across all areas of total reward with projects ranging from job levelling and compensation benchmarking to the development of total reward strategies for some of the world’s largest companies. Our work tends to fall into one of several buckets:

  • Total rewards strategy – we partner with organisations of all shapes and sizes to review, develop and articulate their total rewards strategies and underlying design principles. We have market leading tools that enable our clients to determine how to allocate their total reward spend most appropriately and we are true pioneers when it comes to delivering a consumer grade total reward experience for employees.

  • Job levelling and architecture – we support organisations wherever they may be on the spectrum from introducing job levels for the first time right through to communicating career paths and development opportunities to employees.

  • Sales effectiveness and rewards – we help organisations understand how to drive the achievement of sales goals through aligning strategy to tactics with a focus on sales operating models, role design, compensation / incentive design and governance.

  • Getting compensation right – whether it’s helping a company interpret and navigate their way through the various considerations associated with fairness and greater pay transparency or designing a new base pay structure or short-term incentive plan, we do it all! Together with our unrivalled compensation data and software, we’re the first port of call for companies looking to review and improve their compensation programmes.

Support senior colleagues on a range of projects with clients across various industries. This will involve everything from note taking to complex data analysis to drafting client reports. You’ll typically be working on multiple projects at once so be prepared to juggle.

  • Act as the technical lead on all aspects of analytical project work. This will involve day-to-day liaison with client contacts in addition to working with and coaching less experience analysts in the team.

  • Project manage small projects and / or discrete work streams within larger / global projects.

  • Support senior colleagues with all aspects of client management, from new business development (meetings, proposal writing) to invoicing and client entertainment.

  • Contribute to the development of new intellectual capital, through involvement in research (pulse surveys, global research studies, etc.) and maintaining a proactive interest in industry trends and innovation.

  • Share insights and knowledge picked up through client work and general reading, etc. with colleagues during regular team meetings.

  • You will learn from colleagues who are recognised thought leaders and who will provide regular coaching and feedback to you. In addition, you will participate in a mix of formal and informal development initiatives and online learning.

The Talent & Rewards business combines advisory services, data and software to provide clients with integrated solutions that address their most complex workforce challenges. We help our clients deliver success through connecting the dots between business strategy / priorities, roles, accountabilities and growth, individual contribution, and reward.

We have over two thousand colleagues globally with a talented team of around 400 people in Great Britain. We are comprised of two lines of business – Talent and Rewards – both of which are supported by a global operations organisation. The Rewards line of business covers two advisory practices (Reward (focusing on all employees) and Executive Compensation), our compensation survey business (Global Data Services) and our compensation software business.

Transformation / transactions – through a combination of project management discipline and subject matter expertise, we support organisations at all stages of maturity as they navigate through the unique challenges that come with transformation or transactional activity (M&A, divestiture, spin offs, etc.).
